Chloe and Adele.
Eva seems a really good fit - Biblical through Eve, Latina, and captures some of the light sleekness of Mila. Sarai is another possible option (but you should probably avoid having both an Abram and...
Thessaly is pretty. It feels vaguely like Cecily with a lisp to me. Thessaly Alora is pretty nice. It is a lot of L close together as another poster noted. I also think 3-3 rhythm is not the...

Hmm. 2 syll names won't sound bad with 2 syll last name, but not the best, 3 sylls are a little hard with the first. Either problem is not too bad. You like Lucy but he doesn't, hmm

How many syllables in the last name? That may affect flow...
I see the appeal! It's got a punchy and unique form. I would have reservations though because of the alcohol connotation of mint julep. I mean it's not terrible but alcohol names tend to fall...

I also thought of the above suggestion of Josephine for a middle name to honor the Jo but complete it. I also think you could use Johanna quite easily. For a bit more of a stretch, I think Joy nods...
Valerie - I love the 4-3-2 rhythm, the Frenchiness, and the initials EVE. I think this is a gem!
Julia - This is perfectly solid. I find the soft g sound followed by the j sound less than ideal,...
I have an acquaintance whose daughter is named this and it's not a problem too often. Children and people are usually introduced by speaking, not by reading. As the name becomes more popular, it's...
I think Bruno or any other name that ends with O is a little matchy to Otto, but, it's not terrible. Since you're considering them, I'll include them. Maybe

Annabeth - like it pretty well.
Jubilee - too out there.
Carlotta - it's OK.
Dulcinea - too out there.
Josie - too nickname-y.
Lola - I like it.
Tamar - I'm a fan.
Indira - mixed feelings on...
I like it OK, don't love it, but it's fine. It makes me think of Taryn Rose, the shoe brand.
Mia. I too would like Una more though. Uma is just too tied to the celebrity for me, and looks like "um, a....".
You probably pronounce Dorothy as Door-o-thee, but the pronunciation Dar-o-thee is out there such that Dari wouldn't be implausible. Do you like Dori?
I would avoid anything floral or word-y, anything ending in a vowel or an R or S sound, starting with an I and 2-syllable names. Other than that it might be fair game.
I find Alice and Eliza ever so slightly similar in structure, but they still work. Despite the similarity, they're a better fit together than just Liza. I think Lucinda is a bit funkier, but it's...

They are all nice! To me, Lana maybe has the least staying power. Nina is lovely, so is Lydia. Lydia ties all together with a D. Lydia and Zelda have a lot of sound overlap though, and Lydia is a...
Bayla. I can't for the life of me see Beila vs Bella. Bayla is straightforward to pronounce and I wouldn't care at all if it looks like a Kayla spin off - if it's in your family tree, that grounds...

Winner is the normal pronunciation for plenty of accents in this country though. Same thing with vin and ven being the same. Not sure about Kel and Cal. That might be Calvin being more familiar...
Elizabeth has the best flow. I'd avoid a 2-2 rhythm. Vivian does but I find the ending in M and ending in N a little too similar. Autumn Gray does but is too literal.

Ditto - know a couple with a longish last name who just named their baby daughter this, it's lovely.

This was a tough call. I recommended Aurora Leontine. I may like Aurora best as a name here. Isadora might fit best with Matilda, and I like it, but not as much as Aurora. I think as nicknames go...
